When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there're many more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you use some of our cloud hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've picked for your account during the signup process, thus it is possible to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will allow you to see the available IPs and to keep track of those that are in use in no time. Provided you wish to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you are able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this option, you won't need to do anything after you send in your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then add the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you will be able to secure the information that visitors post on your site even when you lack previous experience with such matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS hosting plans come with one dedicated IP by default and in case you choose a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the signup process, you will get a second one as well completely free. You will be able to use them as you decide - to access online content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other website that you need to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to manage all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them straight away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide have 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You will be able to use them for any purpose according to the content that you've got on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to direct domain names to their web hosting accounts, etceterra. You'll also be able to get extra dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You are able to obtain the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, which means that you can start using them with no delays.
